“a most relaxing stay”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

I have just returned from a stay of four nights. It was the most relaxing holiday. The hotel is beautifully situated on a gorgeous beach with sun beds and umbrellas. Because the hotel is not too big, it has a very intimate feel.. We were three family groups and we had a wonderful time together enjoying our meals, hanging out on the beach sitting around in the evening talking or playing cards, The staff are lovely. The pool area is really nice. We chose half board and enjoyed breakfast and dinner on an inclusive basis. We loved the ritual of the dinners at our table every evening.
I found it hard to leave as life was so simple there. The airport is ten minutes from the hotel and is a small airport, easy to get in and out of. In such a short time, we were at the hotel. The view is the real star of the hotel as all the public spaces are built so that one is always looking out to sea. We did go to Alghero for one dinner at Ristorante O and had an incredible meal overlooking the harbor. The taxi cost 30 euro to get there. This was my first visit to Sardinia and I will definitely be back. Our wifi was great as was our air conditioning. The beds are harder than I would like but I was the only one of 12 who felt this way. Our room was nicely decorated. There is little value in cable TV for English speakers. We took a boat excursion and we really enjoyed it. I will go back to Hotel del Pini and would particularly recommend it for families.

Room Tip: I chose a suite and it was very spacious.

Fantastic hotel, in a great location for relaxing on the beach and enjoying the local area. The service was second to none in this hotel; the staff were always very helpful and friendly.

Some reviews mention small room’s; we stayed in a sea view room, and although cosy was perfect big enough for a comfortable holiday.

Staying half board the food was great- not a buffet style dinner as you get in a lot of hotels but simple healthy home cooked food. With plenty to choose from on menu that changed day to day.

Although the hotel is quite far from the city in the summer months there is a beach bus for just 5 euro return which takes you right in to the city along the coast road.

We will certainly be returning.

We arrived and noticed straight away the air con was not working, despite asking this was not fixed, everyday we were complaining and they wouldn't change our room, after 2 days reception told us they wouldn't be able to switch the air con on as its the "cold" season and it's operated centrally, set on heating, reception asked us to open the window- my boyfriend was badly bitten by moscitos, I was not impressed at all, we stayed 5 nights and we had not slept at all! Very poor for 4* hotel:(
Secondly we asked for the double bed, we had 2 single beds put together instead, beds were moving apart and we were falling inbetween them, when I asked for it to be changed as it was very uncomfortable, reception had organised to put few double bed sheets to keep single beds together! Again very disappointing. So much for the 4* and reputation!
Wi-Fi is not working unless you ask for Internet to be switched on - and even then it doesn't work well or doesn't work at all.
I was veery disappointed as the hotel does not live up to the 4* rating, it was too basic, no one was really friendly, and I always make really good relationships with staff... But this time they had no enthusiasm at all... They were apologetic - but this wasn't good enough!
And you have to pay for beach towels!!!!! Ridiculous!
Beach was nice, food was basic, but ok, we were half board and if you don't have a car this is definately the option otherwise your dinners will cost you lot of money, and taxis to the town are very costly too, public transport is very bad and I would not use it again, you will be in the middle of nowhere, but it's a nice beach to relax on. Overall, I am very disappointed, and the reviews that I have read were nothing to what we have experienced...

Firstly, the hotel staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. The location was outside the main town but was located on an amazing beach. The beach is the main highlight and is truly breathtaking.
The swimming pool overlooks thea beach and bay and is again brilliant. Our room had a beach view with a balcony and was again breathtaking. There was a shuttle bus which took you to the main town 4 times a day for a cost of €5 for day's use. A taxi costs about €20 one way!
There was free wifi but I couldn't get it to connect to my smartphone.
The hotel is about 10minutes from the airport but a booked taxi will cost €30 if booked through the hotel.
The only thing that let me down was the choice of food available. The restaurant provided an adequate breakfast but lunch and dinner were set menu's and cost about €50/70 a meal (for a coiple) That was for not for our liking but that's not to say that would be the same for others. But no negatives to be honest. Definitely worth a visit and stay.

First day, we had an early check in scheduled and they honored our free breakfast. The staff was very generous with a free upgrade to ocean view room. Cable tv only has BBC and Bloomberg tv for english speakers. The room was very nice and clean with central air and a fridge for drinks. The food for breakfast was great and the lunch/dinner menu was of a manhattan quality 4 star restaurant for a reasonably average price. Very impressed with the service and scenery, the hotel is literally on a beach. There is a private section reserved for hotel guests but the rest of the beach is really great with a bar a short walk down and a great view of Alghero city across the water. The airplanes were a little annoying if you're trying to relax on the beach but in the rooms, you cant hear anything from the outside. Although the walls are thin, if you are looking to go to bed early, it may be trouble. Bus service stops in front of the hotel and in many other locations for only 2,50 round trip. The beach had a lot of these blue things from the sea which attracted flies but the staff cleaned it up after a few days

Pros:
Bus service
Staff/service
Food
location

Cons:
Flies
airplanes
tv
small showers
on site convenience store

Room Tip: Beach view is definitely worth it. If you get a bottom floor, it comes with a patio with easy access...

This is a beautifully situated hotel, right on the sea with view on a large bay and the 'skyline' of Alghero in the far distance. The hotel is sparklingly clean. My room had regular size by US standards, large by European. Free internet in room, lobby and terrace! There is a flatscreen TV in the room with satellite reception (I think; I just switched it on once and flipped through the channels but then never used it). There is a pool which looks very nice but it was too cool (for me) to swim, in early May. The hotel rents various boats, sail and pedalo which I have not tried (yet).

We have full board and the food is excellent! All meals are served buffet-style, with a rich assortment of great antipasti (lots of seafood but also other stuff). I barely touch the main course after that; it is very good, too, but I just like the variety of the antipasti. Wine (a decent local red) and mineral water is included with lunch and dinner.

The staff is unobtrusive and friendly.

I read the comment about the horrible music. No idea what happened there. It must have come from the hotel itself since there is nothing for a mile or two in the surroundings, except two houses a few hundred feet away that look residential (and empty; maybe vacation homes?) and a beach bar, mabye 500 yards away. There was absolutely no music outside the bar area, and that was either some guest playing the grand piano there, or some 'smooth jazz' type bar music. I doubt that either of these could be heard in any of the rooms.

I can't comment on the spa since I did not use it, nor on the value since someone pre-paid the bill for me and I never saw the bill (business trip).

All in all, a great place!

We would like share our amazing time we had with Dei Pini's staff which were top level professional people. They gave us more than expected.
The hotel is situated in the most amazing spot of Alghero - you get to eat with an amazing view of the sea and on the beach in 2 mins so after breakfast you can jump in.
Our kids adored the place - the staff were great with kids. We got to enjoy the beach in the morning and the pool in the after. The pool is situated on the other side of the hotel which gives another amazing view of the sea. Great place to relax with your huby while the kids play in the pool - or build sand castle. This is a real holiday for the parents and the kids..
Very important: VERY CLEAN - ROOMS ARE VERY GOOD TOO that helps.
Our kids said that St Martin and Alghero was equal in our top list i.e holidays!
If you get the time to get a "masage" do it. Thanks Rita.
Thanks again to VINCENT - CLAUDIA - ROMINA and the team!!!
WE WILL COME BACK!
